      One of the best company for working parents

      Pros

      Good work/life balance and leadership are very reasonable when it comes to working parents. You get flexible hours for family activities and management are supportive so that you do not feel stressed out about anything. Great team work and collaborations and you never feel alone or lacking of help/assistants from the team. Since it's old company there are some senior members that are amazingly nice and knowledgeable. Overall, it feels like a very humble place that embraces differences. It's definitely not a place for anyone wants to win or very competitive, at lease for the core business unit.

      Cons

      Because of all the Pros, the company tolerates incompetent employees due to old company culture. You need to adjust your expectations and accept the fact that some people who have been with company more than 20 years do get advantages, even though their performance are not the best. This will never change so it's either you accept it or you leave for new company.

      It was ok

      Pros

      The company did well financially every year while I was there so I always received my target bonus. Most of the people I worked with were nice, although there were some interesting personalities in the company- a symptom of the industry I suppose. Also on my particular team, I thought work/life balance was good.

      Cons

      What team you work on in the company definitely impacts your experience. My team lacked innovation and there was virtually zero opportunity for growth. Also merit increases were few and far between- if you're a strong performer you might get a 3% increase every other year. The company also didn't have much of a culture and people seemed to live in fear of making mistakes. Overall, it wasn't a bad place to work, but I think there are better companies out there.

      Pros

      Great people, lots of people have been there 10, 15, even 20+ years which tells you that there are a lot of people who believe in the company and enjoy working there. It was voted as a top place to work for mid-sized businesses for a reason.

      Cons

      Executive team believes the hype over the actual results, resulting in disjointed business units and friction between those units.
